MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) – A man who is running for mayor of Muskogee faces three felony counts of making false bomb threats.

Thirty-7-year-old Robert Eugene Thomas is suspected of calling police February 7th and threatening to set off bombs at the Muskogee Police Department and the Muskogee County-City Detention Facility.

Authorities allege Thomas called police the next day and threatened to detonate explosives at a shopping center in one instance and set off bombs at Hilldale Elementary School in the other instance.

About 1,800 students were evacuated from Hilldale for a short time.

According to a court filing, the person making the bomb threat February 8th said if an employee of a Grandview business came outside and stripped naked that he would turn off the bomb.

A recording of that call helped authorities identify the caller.

WOW! What are the Chances!

Michael McGee Jr. Advances To April 1 Election

MILWAUKEE — Jailed Milwaukee Alderman Michael McGee Jr. has won Milwaukee’s 6th aldermanic district primary where eight other candidates were hoping to unseat McGee as he conducts city business and his re-election campaign from jail.

McGee and attorney Milele Coggs will both advance to the April 1 general election.

She is the niece of Wisconsin state Sen. Spencer Coggs. She ran for an alderman seat in 2003 and lost.

McGee’s campaign told 12 News reporter Brendan Conway Tuesday night that if McGee wins, there will be no victory party. The numbers will speak for themselves.

McGee is scheduled to go on trial during the first week of March on charges he conspired with two other men to have a teenager beaten.

If McGee is found guilty of the felony charges against him, he would be removed from office and another election for McGee’s seat would need to be held.

Also running against McGee were ViAnna Jordan, who organized the failed recall attempt against McGee last year [ViAnna Jordan’s Web Site]. McGee won in a landslide, capturing 62 percent of the vote. Jordan came in third.

Former city employee Una Van Duvall also ran in the recall election last year [Una Van Duvall’s Web Site].

Fred Gordon is a former Milwaukee alderman looking to reclaim a seat. He served three terms on Milwaukee’s Common Council and was once a supporter of McGee’s.

Community activist El Louse Games has no experience on government, but wants to unify the community.

Organizer Mike Brox is a former teacher and security guard.

Local businessman Adel Kheriah lives in Franklin, but used to own a store in the 6th District. Kheriah has said that if he wins Tuesday’s election, he would relocate to the district.
